Oral and panel presentations

Oral and panel presentation sessions will consist of previously recorded platform presentations followed by live discussion.

The session is led by a scientific chair and moderated by technical moderators.

Oral and panel presentation is a presentation with a length of 10 minutes (oral) or 7 minutes (panel). Due to concise presentation time, we highly recommend you to concentrate on the most important points of your research only in your presentation, e.g. presenting only the main results instead of background information. The recommended maximum number of slides is 10 (oral) or 7 (panel). Please use the template available in the conference website. 

The oral and panel presentation will be recorded beforehand by the presenter. The presentation shall consist of slides and video/voice of the presenter. The presentation may be recorded using free ZOOM software, which may be downloaded in here. Alternatively you can also use another software for recording. Please see the separate instructions for recording the video. The recorded oral presentation will be displayed in the session appointed in the program. The recordings will also be available for the access of conference audience in the conference platform.
